Discharge in men in an excited state is considered a natural physiological phenomenon. The action that takes place in the organs of the reproductive system was given the medical term - libidinal urethralrhea.
The natural occurrence of fluid does not cause concern, but in case of pathological processes, other types of secretions, the intervention of doctors is necessary.
The transparent discharge has a consistency of medium thickness, occurs both in a state of sexual arousal and during an erection in the morning. The secret, the pre-seminal fluid, comes out through the urethra during preparatory caresses for intercourse, during masturbation.
The ejaculant is released at the initial stage of sexual intercourse, in a state before orgasm. The mucus neutralizes the residual acidity of the vagina and urethra. Nature has taken care to prepare a favorable atmosphere for sperm without the presence of an acidic environment.
There is no definite amount of mucus secreted, the volume is individual. With an increase in sexual desire, the amount of discharge during an erection increases. Starting from a few drops and ending with 5 milliliters. Fluid may be released with low sperm counts, which does not provide adequate protection against pregnancy when interrupted intercourse is used. The composition of the liquid itself does not contain sperm, but part of the semen ends up in the precum.
With abundant amounts of pre-seminal mucus, doctors advise using differential diagnostics to exclude prostatorrhea, prostatic juices during urination, and bowel movements.
Sperm coming out of the penis is the natural result of ejaculation. It has a whitish shade, a viscous consistency, contains the secret of the gonads, the seed itself. Appears during copulation, masturbation. Lack of semen discharge is a pathology and needs serious examination.
Symptoms of pathologies
- Grayish, greenish, yellowish mucus;
- Bloody spots in urine, semen;
- Lumps, thick discharge with pus;
- The presence of an unpleasant odor, sickening fumes from the liquid, indicating an infectious disease;
- Discomfort and pain during erection.
Signs indicating an unnatural process: edema, hyperemia, itching and burning.
Any options for introspection are excluded, as the situation can get worse. The presence of discharge for diagnosis is not enough, but the released substance can indicate pathology. Some diseases have special specific discharge without secondary symptoms.
Non-specific discharge may indicate the following diseases:
- Inflammatory processes progressing in the genitourinary system, caused by the activation of the work of infectious and opportunistic particles;
- Diseases transmitted from one partner to another sexually;
- Complications arising from operational actions;
- Post-traumatic consequences.
The type of discharge depends on the stage of neglect of the disease, the type of disease, the characteristics of the organism, it is detected exclusively during deep diagnosis under the supervision of a doctor. Before the visit, medications, including antibiotics, are not taken, since these drugs distort the clinical picture, which prevents the establishment of the correct diagnosis with the selection of appropriate treatment.
Occasionally, this natural discharge has an unnatural smell. The fat-producing glands located in the region of the head and foreskin secrete fluid, which accumulates under conditions of poor hygiene, which causes an unnatural smell.
Smegma can be excreted abundantly, promoting the penetration of pathogenic bacteria.
More attention should be paid to men from 16 to 25 years old, at this age, the body has increased sexual characteristics. To remove smegma, it is necessary to completely wash the penis twice a day using antibacterial soap.
The abundance of a whitish plaque, which has an unpleasant, harsh odor, is attributed by many men to smegma, which often hides the true problem: chlamydia, gonorrhea, thrush.
